RE: The tariff classification of a novelty child’s handbag from China

Dear Mr. Stinson:

In your letter dated May 8, 2006, you requested a tariff classification ruling.

The applicable subheading for the novelty child’s handbag will be 4202.22.8050, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS), which provides for handbags, whether or not with shoulder strap, including those without handle, with outer surface of textile materials, other, other, of man-made fibers. The rate of duty will be 17.6% ad valorem.

In your letter, you propose classification in subheading 6307.90.9889, HTSUS, which provides for other made up textile articles, other. Please be advised that subheading 4203.22.8050, HTSUS, is a more specific classification and is therefore the correct classification.

Duty rates are provided for your convenience and are subject to change. The text of the most recent HTSUS and the accompanying duty rates are provided on World Wide Web at http://www.usitc.gov/tata/hts/.

The sample will be returned as requested.
